In Nevada the personal injury lawyers generally take 1/3 of the "winnings" in the beginning. After there is a lawsuit or trial, the rate often goes up to 40% or 50%. The lawyer takes his percentage first, then all the experts and bills are paid, and then the Plaintiff gets anything left overt. The second biggest racket is the medical bills. Most folks have medical insurance or medicare/medicaid. The lawyers tell their clients not to use insurance. Rather, go to the doctors the lawyer recommends who will do the work on a lien (the doctor gets paid when the lawsuit is over). That way your epidural can cost $15,000 instead of $700 and the inflated medical bills help get an inflated settlement or verdict. Its a great money machine!

I understand, however my take, he was honest, he is only in it for the money, and an honest lawyer, is a rarity in my book.


When an adversary has the upper hand, just take the cowards way out, ban him.

This is not the case in my experience. your health insurance can be used but once legal responsibility for the injuries has been established your insurance needs to be reimbursed. The exact terminology escapes me at the moment. A good PI lawyer will negotiate your liability with the service providers and insurance company for you.

The term for the reimbursement process is subrogation.

They are snakes and alot of the litigation seekers are poor broke as heck people that "got to get paid".

I dont think a legit case needs a head hunter in the mix getting rich on the ride.

A good "normal" respected attorney would be more in order.

I might be wrong, but on my tv all I see boasting about there big settlement is inner city folks that talk and act like they are already on the gov. free money train. AND some even have the nerve to say ots there second time with the same head hunter attorney.

Its sad when the morning commercial is a attorney riding a big horned steer and holding a money gun shooting bills in the air saying call me.

Every American ought to thoroughly know the history (soap opera) of P.I. lawyer
John Edwards
Of North Carolina

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Edwards

Quite an eye opening story.

He could have easily become Vice President or even President.
Thank goodness he did not.

His deceased wife and older daughter have proven themselves of quite better character.
